After many years in the antiques trade, I learned how to do my own reupholstery reasonably well, but sadly when it came to barrel chairs, I would usually pass on them when I saw them for sale, and I would always refuse to recover them for clients - they are just too difficult even for a reasonably experienced upholsterer. Straight back and sides I could manage, but many of the older chairs had tufted or ribbed backs, which involves an incredible amount of work, and if the fabric is patterned, they can look like a dog's dinner when you've finished.
Not all rocking chairs are made the same though and this is definitely true in the cases of Cracker Barrel Rocking Chairs as well. They range in prices from about $179 all the way down to $129.99 for the more affordable models. The colors offered can be either wooden, white, or a darker shade if you intend to purchase one of the rockers that pays tribute to the army, air force, navy, or marines.
However, sometimes, things are just supposed to happen. When we exited the bookstore and walked a few steps in the rain, we both turned to find the same man, who was now in the doorway of the bar once again beckoning us. Admittedly, he seemed as if he was already a few sheets to the wind, but he seemed harmless enough. He invited us into the bar as if he was its designated ambassador. And that is how we wound up visiting the oldest bar in Malaga, Spain and discovering its sweet wines.
One of the easy jobs in refurbishing the old furniture is changing the seat padding of the chairs. They can be easily unscrewed. Then you can cut the cloth according to the size and staple it back. Changing the barrel seat slipcovers is almost the same too. You just need to cut the fabric in the shape of seat and make sure it stick with the seat well. If left loose, barrel seat slipcover can come off making it uncomfortable to sit. It is not so daunting task to restore the antique furniture and making them match with the modern world accessories in your living room.
